Last March, a University of California Santa Barbara “feminist studies” professor named Mireille Miller-Young stole a sign from 16-year-old pro-life activist Thrin Short. Here’s what happened next.
Miller-Young told campus police that the sign had “triggered” her. And she added: “I’m stronger, so I was able to take the poster.”
As Eric Owens reports, yesterday Miller-Young “pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of grand theft, vandalism and battery”:
Miller-Young will face a sentencing hearing on Aug. 14. The prosecutor, Ron Zonen, told the Independent he does not expect the judge in the case, Brian Hill, to order Miller-Young to spend a day in jail. Prison remains a possibility, but Zonen strongly expects some combination of fines, restitution, community service and mandatory anger management classes…
To date, the UC Santa Barbara administration has not commented publicly about the charges or issued any sort of apology for the crimes Miller-Young does not contest committing.
Their silence says it all.
This is an object lesson for good people everywhere. When you’re wronged, hit Record.
